Hello, and welcome to my blog. I was hesitant to make the first wobbly steps into this realm of communication, but thanks to Camille Minichino (www.minichino.com/wordpress), a multifaceted individual and author (aka Margaret Grace and Ada Madison), I’m here. I’ll be answering questions for the continuing blog chain titled: The Next Big Thing, then forwarding to you five blogs of other authors. It sounds like great fun, and a more exciting way of introducing new works. I’m thrilled to be asked to be part of it.

But before I dive into the interview for my first cozy crime novel (I have two short story collections, Mystery Montage and Crime Montage) I’d like to share with you more about me, starting with my home city, San Francisco, and the exciting week we had. Not only was it Fleet Week, an event that included the Blue Angels, (All the photos on the blog are mine — I love to take pictures with my Sony Alpha and old SLR XG9 Minolta),

but last year, the Maltese Falcon visited San Francisco– a nice little surprise for us mystery buffs. The masts automatically shift with the changing winds.

You, too, could own this for 120 million!
Besides slipping pictures into most of my posts about different local events (and some on momentary lapses of perception about nature and life), I hope to be sharing more about the psychology of characters, in and out of books, asking your opinions about the breadth and depth of the characters in your life, and adding some thoughts on literature and writing. Your comments are always welcome.
To learn more about me (my short story awards including the Anthony and Derringer finalist, “Homeless”, and my Marin Fringe winning play, The Gatekeeper), and read a few of my works, go to https://www.patricialmorin.com.
AND … be the first to name this city in Europe and win my latest short story collection, Crime Montage.

Where is this?
